As we know, The Hub is a community for creators. Their mission is to connect creators to each other and to brands. However, I believe that members of The Hub often forget the connect to each other part. Think about that for a minute. You are part of a community full of people like you. Sure, they may be doing different things, but everyone is a creative, everyone has a passion, everyone has a purpose. As a member you have a creative world at your fingertips. There are currently 27,659 members of The Hub. Everyday that number grows. Think of all of the inspiration, collaboration, and growth that can come from searching fellow creatives and making new friends.
So I thought I would do some work for you. Below are some accounts that you should check out on The Hub. Whether you are a model, photographer, or none of the above these accounts will inspire you.

The models she works will are all so different, and they all have their own personalities in each photos which I feel Jenna does a really great job portraying. Creepy doll, indoor, outdoor, horses, milkshakes you name it. It’s a cool profile.

I can tell by looking that a lot of thought went behind each post. Her captions are killer too!
10. Joshua Guiles (@joshuaguiles)
Joshua is a photographer and videographer currently in San Diego, CA. His editing style is very vibrant. I like this a lot because it’s bold and different from what I normally follow on Instagram. He also does a lot of really cool editing with his photos. His profile is energetic, fun, and very real. He shows the world what he sees and even with his edits it comes across as unfiltered.
11. Allee G (@alleewild)
Allee is a photographer, model, and writer. Her account looks like one big adventure. It feels like there is a storyline to follow along with. She has portraits of herself, photos with friends, of hikes, of landscape, and of tents and cars. They are scattered together so you get a sense of movement and as a follower you are riding along on whatever journey she is on.

Mainly known on Instagram as Hael she is a photographer and model from Minnesota. Her photos are very bright and lively with a high contrast look, but it works because she’s consistent. Her page changes with the season. In the fall she had a lot of warmth and cabin vibe photos, now she’s transitioned to tropical. The photos are mainly her visiting cool places, her page is a fun and carefree view on life. She’s definitely my daily reminder to worry less and to book that flight somewhere wonderful, you only live one.

This gives her profile the anonymity necessary for followers to feel like they could be on the adventures she is on.

We should all search for eachother a little bit more because you never know when you could find your next best friend or collaboration. I found a lot of these profiles from the “Search Creatives” tab on the website. It’s super easy, convenient, and honestly fun. Go give it a try.
